This beautifully renovated forestry hut is located behind our main house, in our little piece of paradise. On 63 acres, home to Fay, Bushie, four horses, two dogs and one cat, this oasis is tucked away with the only neighbour looking at us being Mt Buffalo, or as the locals call her, The Grand Old Lady.

The property hosts an abundance of native birds, Mr Wally wombat, deers and kangaroos. Backing on to State Forest, there are many walks from a 20min walk to a 2-4 hour walk in the hills or quietly along the river. You have access to BBQ facilities and a pool in the summer months.

The naming of the love shack came about upon purchasing the property some five years ago. Fay's father, at the time 90 years of age, and his girlfriend, 91 years of age, automatically named it the Love Shack as they envisaged, once renovated, them sitting in bed, playing cards and taking in the view and so the name stuck. In keeping with the name, we have created a luxurious, romantic space for two.

Thank you Fay & Bushie for such a wonderful stay! Such welcoming, friendly hosts who went above and beyond to ensure the beautiful Love Shack was a relaxing, romantic getaway. All the thoughtful details (eg. Wine & platter on arrival!) were very much appreciated. The outdoor bath is heavenly, the scenery is stunning and the pet dogs are super cute! Couldn’t recommend it highly enough! Plus the location is perfect for exploring Bright, and many walks are accessible from their property. We’d definitely love to visit again! Cheers, Mikhala & Anthony...

My partner and I came to Bushies Love Shack for a belated anniversary getaway and it was better than we could’ve imagined. The shack was beautiful and there were so many thoughtful touches which made it that extra bit special. They had fantastic recommendations for the local area, our favourite was dinner at Tomahawk in Bright and watching the sunset at the Horn on the top of Mt Buffalo. To top it off, Fay and Bushie were the most warm and welcoming people we have ever met. Nothing was a hassle and they were so helpful in every possible way. We will definitely be back and thanks again for a great few days!...
